Chrissy Zebby Tembo & Ngozi Family - My Ancestors (1974)
Fuzzed out wah wah psych from Zambian guitarist Chrissy Zebby Tembo. This cat play man. Just listen to the three minute solo on "Oh Ye Ye", a track that was on the Love, Peace & Poetry: African Psychedelic Music comp that came out back in 2004. The guitar work is straight up groovy, man, and fuzzed all the way out. "Trouble Maker" is a dirty little jam with a slight African hint. It's a little more upbeat than most of the stuff I'm diggin' on these days, but it's sunny out and there's a breeze in the air and Chrissy is providing just the right vibrations, you dig.
